In March of 2019, SPIRE Credit Union introduced an all-new Visa® card program with .25% of every credit card purchase directly benefiting a SPIRE partner charity. Since its inception, SPIRE has given back over $59,000. SPIRE anticipates giving back $225,000 in 2019 from this new program.
The new SPIRE vertically designed Visa Credit cards look sleek and have increased security with card information on the back to deter skimmers, but the new give back feature is having the most impact. As members pay for everyday expenses like groceries, gas, and utilities, or unexpected expenses like car and home repairs, they are improving the lives of people in their community and around the world. So, the more our members use their SPIRE Visa Credit card for purchases, the more SPIRE gives back.
On-going donations will combat world hunger and homelessness, or benefit cancer research and treatment, families in crisis, abandoned pets, veterans, and other worthy causes. SPIRE Visa Credit card holders are able to choose which cause their purchases will benefit when they log into SPIRE Internet Banking.
The SPIRE Visa Signature Credit card also offers a rewards program with unlimited 1.50% cash back or one point for every dollar spent redeemable for travel or merchandise.
SPIRE President/CEO Dan Stoltz has made a commitment to give back in a unique way, unlike any other. Standing by SPIRE’s core action – giving back enforces our core purpose of improving lives. “Our commitment to improving lives has always been at the core of what SPIRE does on a daily basis,” stated SPIRE President/CEO Dan Stoltz, “with our new Visa give back program, our members can improve the lives of those here at home and across the globe by simply using their credit card. We are very excited to see how this program will impact our communities in the months and years to come!”
